This was a summer replacement series aired on the now-defunct DuMont Television Network. DuMont had good coverage on the east coast but had trouble getting affiliates in the west coast and in the central parts of the USA. Most of their series was live, with this being among the few produced on film in advance.

Pretty good showcase for 1950's country music, with a little bit of everything: Square dancing, down-beat ballad, catchy instrumental, comic-novelty, vocal-group and religious. Sound quality is pretty good.

Though a summer-replacement series, this is among the better-preserved DuMont series.
